    Hello guys,
    Just wondering about the time I will spend during revision.


    My aim was to revise one hour per night each subject, however overall that is nine hours plus the seven hours at school.

    I wish to achieve high grades if possible ,however I am concerned that if I do to little revision ,I will fall short of this target.

    I was wondering if I revise forty -five minutes per subject per night on a weekday; one hour per day during the weekend, if it would sufficient to achieve the top grades , my closest exam is in four and a half weeks.

    Also how long are you guys revising?


    Thanks.

    You should consider revising at least 2 or at the most 3 subjects each day, but alternate between subjects. Try 45 minute sessions and make sure you have rid yourself of all distractions. . Also a great tip someone told me was to wake up early on a weekend and get some revision done then. I prefer the quiet as well! On a weekend I do about 4 hours revision of about 4 different subjects with breaks in between. If you need more help let me know.

    Well it depends on the person. If you want A's and A*'s then I think 1 hour per night isn't enough. Perhaps 90-100 minutes would be better. Plus, it's easter so get a lo of effective revision done. For example, do 2-3 hours a day but space it out. One in the morning doing maths. One in the evening doing economics. One at night doing french.

    Do you recommend one subject per day for example. Two hours of French every tuesday? My only concern with this method is that revision is not often for that individual subject. If I do one hour for one subject each night then over the course of six weeks, I will have accumulated a total of seventy hours. Seventy hours is surely enough for straight A's and A*'s?
